London:

Arsenal midfielder Denilson is determined to leave the club after enduring another trophyless season with the Gunners, it was reported on Friday.

The 23-year-old Brazilian joined Arsenal from Sao Paulo in 2006, and has become increasingly frustrated at the club's failure to challenge for silverware in the five years since his move.

Denilson told The Sun he has already met Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and informed him of his decision to leave.

"I've simply been to see (manager) Arsene Wenger and told him how I felt - and he has agreed to let me go," Denilson said.

"This has been the worst season of my life and I am so upset, so frustrated. I am a winner and I came here to win trophies but I've been here for five years and won nothing."

"A footballer's career is over very quickly so it is time to move on."

"I know some people think I'm crazy. I need a fresh challenge and although I know I'm taking a big gamble I am ready to take that risk."

"I can't see myself returning in a Chelsea shirt, or Liverpool or Manchester City - and definitely not Tottenham. I think my future will be in Spain or Italy."
